“We look forward to the trip every year.
We enjoyed the new presenters;
they were very patient with the children!”
– Nicole Biscari, Grade 4, Elwood
"Whale of a stop. Large enough to showcase important stuff, small enough to be personal. Have taken my groups here and they all enjoy it."
Our museum welcomes thousands of school children every year, exploring themes about whales and Long Island’s connection to our oceans. Carving a scrimshaw box has become a right of passage! Learn more about our various offerings for school groups here.
Materials are mailed to teachers currently booked for 'Wonder of Whales' and 'Whalers & Whaling' Programs.
Our school programs are aligned to NY State Standards.
